    • We thank you for your continued support for the Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters and are extremely excited about our latest fundraising effort.  The MSCFF has partnered with Jacked Up Giveaways and are giving away a 2014 Silverado 1500 Dream Truck built by KC Customs of Gladstone, MO.

      So how do I get a chance at winning this new Truck?  It is as simple as visiting the Jacked Up Giveaways website and making a Donation.  The drawing for this Grand Prize will be held on December 16, 2014, so it gives you plenty of time to purchase as many chances as you like over the course of the next 6 months.  The Official Rules of this event are listed at the bottom of the Donate To Enter page.  Donations start as low as 2 Tickets for $20.00.

      Scott Cranford, a member of the Joplin Professional Fire Fighters and is a Training Chief for the Joplin Fire Department, has a one year old son, Cade. Cade was recently diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer, Retinoblastoma. The treatments required are expensive and are performed in New York City.

      More information is available on the GO Team Cade on Facebook as well as an article on the Joplin Professional Fire Fighters Association website.

      If you wish to make a donation please make checks payable to the Scott Cranford Family, c/o Joplin Professional Fire Fighters Association, PO Box 1712, Joplin, MO 64801.

      From the office of Liz Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer AFL-CIO

      In your key roles as leaders of our important State Feds and CLCs, you know better than anyone that buying union-made products and services is a great way to stand in unity with our brothers and sisters. Thankfully, there is a clear option to do just that in the often crowded world of mobile carriers. With 45,000 workersrepresented by the Communications Workers of America, AT&T is the only national unionized wireless provider and is the clear choice for union members, their families and for the union staff working to promote their interests.
      In an effort to ensure that AT&T is the clear union choice for telecommunications services, CWA facilitated negotiations with AT&T, the AFL-CIO, and Union Plus to provide discounted wireless service for union offices, union staff, and most importantly, valued union members. In addition, through negotiated discounts with the AFL-CIO, AT&T also offers significant savings on local and long-distance, internet, video and web conferencing and other communications technology services for national, regional and local union offices.

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.

      This video is from the IAFFTV Library and features the Community Paramedic Workshop that was given at the Redmond Symposium 2013.

      2018 IAFF Convention Coming to Seattle
      07/25/14 - IAFF 7th District
      Local 27 and the Magnificent 7th District will be hosting the 2018 Convention. This will be a historic convention marking the 100th year anniversary of this great Union. It may well be our largest gathering to date and having it within the 7th District borders allows for small Locals to attend where they may otherwise not due to financial constraints. Many Locals responded to the 7th District VP's call to assist with a modest financial contribution to Seattle Local 27 to offset some of the cost of securing this convention bid (please see the attached list). To the Locals on the list....a heartfelt thank you from the 7th DVP for helping. So prepare your budgets for attendance to the 2018 IAFF Convention to be held in Seattle!
